Announcement   Hi there, welcome to WHY? BECAUSE! All my jewelry pieces are one-of-a-kind, made from salvaged vintage lovelies that I recreate in my crazy-cluttered little work room.

The jewelry I make is sweet, sublime and simple. Made from repurposed vintage bric-a-brac, it has whim and charisma you don't find in the average "contemporary" vintage style accessories. Bits and bobs from the past are happily brought together to create something new and lovely for YOU.

Have a question or custom gift request? Just let me know how I can help!

~~~ I LOVE to make custom bridesmaid jewelry so if your special day is coming up I'd love to work with you to make the perfect bridesmaid gifts!~~~

Pop over to my blog for WHY? BECAUSE. You can follow me and get sneak peeks of upcoming jewelry, (and my life!) at
whybecause-etsy.blogspot.com
See you there!

~~~ CUSTOM REQUESTS ARE WELCOME!!! ~~~
I love making special pieces for special people. :) If you have an old keepsake(s) that just aren't wearable in today's styles I can incorporate them into a special design for you or as a gift! Just contact me for more info!


I GIFT WRAP your purchase for you with brown paper and a little cotton string bow, all ready for gift giving. And if you would like a special note attached let me know at check out in 'Message to Seller'.

I accept payment through Direct Checkout and Pay Pal.

Feel free to contract me with any questions. If you need a necklace or bracelet lengthened of shortened, just let me know at checkout and if possible I will happily alter it for you.

These are so beautiful and when I purchased these beautiful earrings I didn't realize how many pieces of my jewelry that I could pair my necklaces and bracelets with - I love your design, the colors of crystals you chose and how it all came together to create this beautiful piece of jewelry - thank you!!

About

My Little Obsession

Each piece of jewelry I make has a little of myself in it. I feel that I don't just put pieces of chain and beads together, I take a thought, a feeling out of myself and make it into something you can see and wear.

My jewelry is often inspired by the lovely salvaged vintage objects themselves. I'm fascinated by the history of the sometimes century old items I find and the stories and lives of the people who used and loved them. Recreating these oddments into something beautiful and useful is like preserving a small part of history.

Even the most simple and dainty pieces I create make me smile because I made it with a particular thought or mood behind it. I hope they'll make you smile too. :)

    In a nut shell I'm: a crazy-obsessed jewelry maker with tendencies of giggling uncontrollably, a garage sale extraordinaire, (with help from mom!) and lover of cast-off curios. I often squeal over the cuteness of bunnies and other furry animals.
